Last Saturday, the Galesburg Pubulic Library's Teen Advisory Board, headed by Melinda Jones-Rhoades, held their winter Care-a-Thon. Volunteers made cranes!
Here's an article about the event:
We are SO HONORED to be a reciepient of these origami cranes! I know they will go to someone who needs a lot of care and hope.
Thank you thank you thank you!
There is an old Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami paper cranes will bring good luck. Cranes for Cancer's mission is to provide baskets or vases of 1,000 cranes to cancer patients. The 1000 cranes bring hope and uplift spirits. We've been doing this for about 18 years, but we NEED HELP! You can help by: 1) Donating money for supplies 2) Donating origami paper 3) FOLDING CRANES.
If you know of a person who is in need of 1,000 origami paper cranes, please send an e-mail and we will send your dear friend or family member 1,000 paper cranes of hope and healing.
